Don't try to "fix" font smoothing. #113

The rule for "-webkit-font-smoothing" was removed, because it doesn't 'fix' anything, but rather looks really, really bad on Chrome.

See here for more reasons why it should be removed: (this article isn't written by me, but it does mention Skeleton)

+1 for this update. I read the article also and it does bring up a good point.

Stop fixing font smoothing. #117


This has been resolved with v2.0 of Skeleton.

Thanks so much for the PR and completely my fault for not addressing it in a timely fashion. Skeleton is back under active development after a nearly 2 year hiatus. I apologize and really appreciate the input and promise to keep up with any future issues!
